As is the case most times the mid season classics are popularity contests voted on by the fans, and the home teams stuff the ballot box. Clearer heads prevailed as Bradley Wright-Phillips, Aaron Long & Amir Murillo were selected for this high honor. Long & Murill were coaches picks as BWP was a Commissioner's pick. After of course the hosts, Atlanta United, NYRB has the most players in the whole of the Major League Soccer.
The Facebook page Soccer Long Island Magazine has many videos of these players and others to play in the game.
